September 29, 2016 – A selection of 100 Second Films from the 10th International 100 Second Film Festival from Iran were on exhibition at the Northampton Film Festival.
The films were curated by the 100-Second Festival of Boston, Massachusetts through a partnership with the organizing committee in Tehran. Al Williams, Executive producer of the Northampton Film Festival commented
We were enthralled to be able to host 100-Seconds as part of the Northampton Film Festival. It was a highlight contribution to the work we could provide the public. This is work that cannot be seen anywhere else in the United States, even online. It represents examples of expression, distilled expressions, from a region of the world from which we have muted or little experience. It was an honor to be able to showcase these voices.
The 60 minute program of films was carefully selected from over 200 films that were exchanged from Iran to Boston in the Spring of 2016. The films were followed by a discussion.
